Wherever there are large numbers of people chaos in one form or another will be present.

Whether on the waterway

in the housing

or the market places

But perhaps the most evident chaos of all is on the roads.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

    Perfect images for the theme. Asian cities always seem chaotic to me yet the locals are apparently oblivious of the traffic, crowds and noise.

    • Yes we watched a toddler crossing the road in his car that he moved with his feet. It was so low to the ground but he did it fearlessly and no-one around seemed at all worried about this kid. Me, at the same place in the road, decided to walk some distance to lights where I thought it was marginally safer to cross. I didn’t have the courage.

  3. Thanks for the wonderful photo essay – a very crowded place, but so interesting.

  5. We think it’s chaos, but the people in the midst of it seem to know what they are supposed to be doing. It’s a question of survival, I think.
